It's funny I keep reading that suggestion but to be honest, that actually
hurts me for PVR250 recordings. With caching on, the frontend will move from
file to file with a slight pause in between. With caching off, it stops at
the end of a file and refuses to move on to the next. DVB, however, doesn't
seem to be effected either way for me.

- Mark.
